San Juanillo Costa Rica
San Juanillo is a local fishing community located in Central Guanacaste, south of Marbella and North of Ostional. This area, especially the three beaches comprised in the area known as San Juanillo are considered the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste. The sand is very white, the water is great for snorkeling because of the amazing visibility. The first two beaches form a small Peninsula with a small island surrounded by two strips of white sand, a truly unique geographic formation. There is a third beach located north, which is equally beautiful, ideal for relaxing in the shade, swimming or snorkeling in the waters. Rock formations and pinnacles between both beaches are habitat for amazing populations of coral fish, corals and other sea creatures. Another attractive feature of San Juanillo is the fact that the area has not been and will never be developed because it is part of a local cooperative community of local Santa Cruz fishermen, so the area will always remain as such, secluded, pristine and authentic. San Juanillo is located around 1 hour South of Tamarinda Bay ( Playa Negra and Avellanas ) and around 30 minutes North of the beaches of Nosara ( Nosara, Ostional, Guines and Playa Pelada ).
